I honestly don’t think what he said was *that* bad, More insensitive than truly racist, though still not a good thing to say.
However, I’m glad the ADL called him out for it, if for no other reason than Kanye’s total meltdown that’s sure to follow and be incredibly amusing.
Youth Lagoon is wayyy too low.
She looks like she’s gonna start crying and have a breakdown every time she starts singing!
Really? I find “Artpop” to be incredibly boring and just a huge drag overall. She seems to be on autopilot the whole time, basically just using some of her more successful song formulas and adding a little bit of EDM to fit into today’s top 40, None of the melodies really stick, and her lyrics are atrocious.
“Do What U Want” is the one exception though, and it’s a killer banger.
I think the Rick Ross cover had a lot more potential. Plus, no “UNGGGHH!”???
It’s quite possible that the reactions are based on those people’s personal preferences rather than ignorance to Sky Ferreira’s connections in the industry. I personally find Sky Ferreira’s work to be of much higher quality than Miley’s and would rather not pay an exorbitant ticket price that mostly goes to Miley just to see Sky perform.
Yes, because who *doesn’t* pay money to just read lyrics without even any music to accompany them?
The scene in “The Lost Highway” where Lou’s cover of “This Magic Moment” soundtracks the lady getting out of the car is pretty great too!
Now come on–they don’t have massive egos, they’re just not showing humility!
“not showing humility” is a great way to spin Ye’s infamous egomania. I would sure hope a white man as self-obsessed (not showing humility?) as Kanye would get made fun of as well–though I’m sure his retorts would be nowhere near as amazing.
OH SHIT you know you’re though when you can no longer get respect at high school football games!
I don’t think autopsies and toxicology results are always available immediately, but the news that the last day of this festival was cancelled due to two MDMA-related deaths is pretty big and worth reporting in a timely manner.
Isn’t it possible that the deets weren’t clear right away?
I don’t see as how this post was meant to demonize MDMA. I reread it a couple of times and saw no editorializing at all, just what appear to be the facts. I trust readers can then reach their own conclusions.
Fishies ain’t shit.
You’re from the ’70s but I’m a ’90s fish!
It’s called “music.”
I think if you actually listened to both artists rather than hating cuz of the hype alone, you’d know that there’s clearly a difference.
Is it just me, or does she remind anyone else of Lili Taylor’s character in “Say Anything” who basically spends the whole movie singing these ranting songs about Joe?
THAT’LL NEVER BE ME!!!
more or less =
OOHHHHHHHHHH I ran out of white dove feathers to soak up the hot piss that comes through your mouth every time you address me!
I love “Say Anything,” those anti-Joe songs, and Fiona Apple.
The mellotron on the chorus and her vocal ad libs at the end just kill me every time. Amazing.
Yeah, usually I have an angry gut reaction to all Beatles covers, but hers is the one huge exception. I think I honestly enjoy her recording of it better than the original.
The “10 Best Songs” lists are always in list format, while the “____ Albums From Worst To Best” are always slide shows, afaik.
Personally, I don’t mind the quiet-loud thing so much as the terrible mixing that results in (depending on how high you set the volume) the intro being so quiet you can barely hear it, and/or the loud part being so loud it hurts my ears.
A shift in dynamics is fine, but this is a straight-up assault on production values.
And my answer is “Of course! That’s an awesome cover.”
But your initial question is completely absurd, to the point of laughable, to most people.
I may be a small minority here, but I have some big disagreements with this list. (Top 3 is exactly right though.)
First off, I’m totally with RapJesus–”This Is Happening,” imo, is clearly their weakest album. Not a bad album by any measures, but not a great album like s/t and “Sound of Silver.” The only song I would put on here from that album is “All I Want.”
I have detailed rebuttals of many other choices, but I guess it’s better to just make my own list:
9. Daft Punk Is Playing At My House
8. Yr City’s A Sucker
7. Get Innocuous
6. Beat Connection
5. Us V. Them
4. All I Want
3. Losing My Edge
2. Someone Great
1. All My Friends
Heavy on the first two albums, but 4 from s/t, 4 from “Sound Of Silver” and one from each of the others seems right to me.
I saw them three years straight–2010, 2011, 2012– and each show there was hardly any overlap in their setlists. I know they played both “Else” and “The Weather” in two of those shows, but aside from that almost every other song was only played once out of three shows.
You’re a good man, Charlie Brown.
